From the Washington Metropolitan Transit Authority:

As of 6 p.m., 14 Metrobus lines are operating on snow emergency routes until further notice. It is expected that all Metrobuses will be removed from service late tonight as road conditions deteriorate and snow accumulates.

In the District of Columbia, the U5, U8, D2, G2, and H8 are operating on snow emergency routes. In Northern Virginia, the 1 (A,B, E, F, Z), 3A, 3T, 4(A, B), 16 (A,D), 16G, 17H, 28 (A,X), 29 (H,G) are operating on snow emergency routes.

Customers may want to take advantage of the Next Bus prediction technology to get an idea when the next bus will be arriving by logging onto Metro’s web site or calling 202-637-7000 and saying, "next bus." Buses are expected to be moving slowly on the roads, which remain slippery.

Metro officials cautioned riders to be mindful of slippery roads, which are being used as walkways because most sidewalks remain covered with snow. "Take your time when boarding a bus, as we know that there are huge piles of snow lining the edges of streets and blocking the bus stops," Metro Acting Deputy General Manager of Operations Dave Kubicek. "Please do not to run to catch a bus, as it’s not worth a fall that could cause an injury."

How to get Updates on Winter Weather Conditions

There are a variety of ways for customers to stay informed during a major storm. Metro constantly updates local news media of Metro service changes. Information is also available on Metro’s home page here. Customers can also subscribe to e-Alerts and receive up-to-date service disruption information on Metrorail and MetroAccess.
